This doesn't remind me of an X-Men movie. It feels grittier. I'm so interested though seeing Wolverine old is hard. Does this mean we're getting old too?

I didn't take a picture by this what it looked like minus the orange peel on top and mine was square.

I think the idea came from The Great British Baking Show because I adore watching it and they happened to have a baker on there that made something chocolate orange and my mind was a whirl with possibilities.

What You Need
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
8 tablespoons cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons white vinegar
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice (you'll need 2 oranges)
2 tablespoons orange zest
10 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups of water

3 1/2 cups confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
1 cup cocoa powder
12 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup milk approximately, room temperature
2 teaspoons orange juice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Soooo sinfully good...Collapse )

I found these online and thought I'd share since so many seemed interested last time and I was saving them anyway. LOL

My best friend has told me, so far, they aren't going to be evacuated but should the fire advance in their direction at all they will be leaving. Thankfully, the fire has turned west of them and winds are blowing in that directions which keeps the fire moving that way. The sad part is that it is advancing on a highly populated area. It would be nice if the fire would reverse a bit and burn back on itself which would make it extremely difficult for the fire to advance.

Yesterday night the fire was downgraded from 30,000 acres to 25,626 acres and gained a 4% containment. This morning it was reported to be 31,689 acres and still at 4% containment. Overnight fires tend to gain more ground because it is nearly impossible for helicopters to see where they will pick up water and exactly where it needs to be dropped despite the glow of the fire. However, the first night of this fire it grew approximately 10,000+ acres but last night it was only 6,000. This is progress. Hopefully they will gain more containment and the weather will aid them.

The worst thing about this, for me, was reading somewhere online that the Southern California fire season hasn't started. See in Southern California the fire season is usually later and more into fall when the Santa Ana winds kick up. So all the dryness from summer added with massive winds make a spark and inferno in no time. This is a rather scary thought considering SoCal has experienced several large fires already. My only hope is there will be enough burned already to prevent much from burning later... though California is huge so it is unlikely.

I wish this drought would end and we'd get a good downpour of rain.

I wanted to share these pictures with you from down by my best friends. It amazes me that I've been to some of these places and all I can do is pray for the residents there. These pictures are beautiful and terrifying all at once.
